Adult Social Care

Adult Social Care focuses on supporting vulnerable adults to feel safe, included and a key part of the community. This includes adults with mental health conditions, autism, learning disabilities, physical disabilities, sensory needs (sight and hearing difficulties) and older people.

“Our vision is to provide people and their carers with appropriate support that prevents, reduces or delays the need for ongoing care, while giving them choice and control, making a positive difference to their lives and maximising their wellbeing and independence in their local community”, said Cllr Charles Margetts, executive member for health, wellbeing and adult services.
